The Law of Righteousness. By Ananda Maitriya. (Allan Bennett)

“Self-seeking for the brute,—for Man the Sacrifice of Self; the world’s thrones for the weak and foolish,—Self-empire for the Strong and Wise; Hatred grown into Love, and all the darkness of Ignorance illumined by the Light of Lights, which is the Law of Uttermost Compassion:—thus shall it be on earth when the Great Law shall have at last worked out the Destiny of Man” [via]

“It is the darkest hour in all the evolution of a man, this realisation that the Self that he has striven to perfect and work for is no more than a delusion;-but it is also the darkest hour which goes before the dawn;-for soon that darkness passes, giving way to the light of a deeper and surer Wisdom”
